I’m SERIOUSLY sick as a dog BUT I wanted to share a little video I’ve been meaning to post: my super simple, ride or die beauty tips & tricks.
Some of these you guys may have already seen some of these tippity tips BUTTTT haven’t actually tried them, so test them out & let me know your thoughts ( none of this is sponsored, I actually love all of these products! ).
Just to give a quick overview before you watch the video:
Brushing my lips: If you’re wearing lipstick ( especially dark lipstick ) brush your lips. Having a piece of red crust falling off your lips is no fun. This trick really smoothes & preps the lips. Add coconut oil to the toothbrush for a smoother finish. Read more here.
Dry brushing my whole bod: I cannot say enough good things about dry brushing. It’s really changed my life. If I miss a day, I feel off. It stimulates my body/lymphatic system like NOTHING ELSE. Read more here.
Color correcting photo finish: this little bottle of green goodness is FUCKING AMAZING. Sorry, it is. Basically when you mix green with red, it takes away redness. Hence the green-ish shade. So if I have a nasty-ass zit or a red face ( you guys get it ) it basically takes the redness away. I’m obsessed. No one likes red splotches all over their face, right?, & this gets rid of it. SO IN LOVE.
Rose hips oil: OILS ARE MY OBSESSION. I use oil on everything. My hair, body, & to burn ( I’ll do a post soon ). Rose hips oil is great for makeup remover & to mix a dot with foundation. It gives the foundation a dewey, pretty finish. Just one drop mixed with your foundation & you’re good to go! Also, this tip makes your foundation/concealer last longer so essentially you’re saving money too ( by the way, I also love tea tree oil to zap zits ).
Color correcting duo: this is kind of like a random find. Literally I think I got it in a Victoria’s Secret swag bag that they were giving out for free at the mall. It’s this long, ugly-ish stick. The stick sat in my bathroom for 2 years until I finally tried it out. And now?! It’s my FAVORITE makeup product. One side is like a highlighter to use under brows & on top of your lip. And the other side is a green color that will make a pimple disappear in an instant ( because again, green takes the red away! ). Miracle stick!
NOW, watch away:
